Terrible Two-sday : The shoe won’t fit!!
Carly Jo just turned two in July. She’s my youngest (and third) child. You would think I had a clue on how to handle terrible twos. I thought I did. I was prepared. However I learned an important lesson. Every child is different. Carly Jo is the hardest one yet to deal with. She has a temper unlike the others. She’s also very determined which causes a lot of her fits and screams. (Boy is she a screamer!
Look at the face…doesn’t she look so happy!! Do you want to know what caused this face? Her shoe wouldn’t fit. She got into her bucket that I keep all of her shoes and apparently I hadn’t clean it out yet (my next week project) and she found a pair of shoes that she wanted to wear but was a size maybe two sizes too small. I kept trying to explain to her that it was too small and told her to go get her other shoes if she wanted shoes on and I would help. This lead to this:
At this point I realized reasoning wasn’t going to work. I walked her into her room, set her on her bed, and shut the door. It took about ten minutes of constant screaming and then she started playing on her bed quietly. The fit was over.
What would you have done? Do you have a story of a terrible two or need a little advice on a terrible two? I would love to hear about it.
Each week I will share another story of terrible twos…it could be yours!
